Win Your Life Podcast - Mini Series 2 - Episode 4 - Becoming an Olympic Cross Country Skier with Annie Hart

Episode 8,  Nov 10, 2020, 04:12 PM

It's almost that time of year. If you're getting your cross country skis out and getting ready to hit the trails, this podcast is for you.

From 2014 until 2018, I had the privilege of being Annie Hart's strength and conditioning coach. When Annie and I started training she was ranked in the top 40 in the country as a Cross Country Skier. Her stated goal in 2014 was making the 2018 Olympics and she identified her strength and athleticism and two major areas where she could improve. We took an approach that at the time that was considered unconventional by the skiing community, using CrossFit, Olympic weightlifting and other high intensity forms of strength and conditioning to improve her performance on her skis.

If you're curious about Annie's journey and how to train for Cross Country skiing year round, definitely take a listen and let us know what you think! Thank you to Annie for taking the time to record this over the summer!!
